IP Lincoln Evening Tonmal Nebraska State Journal Thursday, March 2, 1967--P.M. I ·MHIimilllll May Be Wrong illlllllllllllllllHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUINHHIIIIIIIIIIIIimilMHIIIUUIUUU! By Curt Mother Journal Sports Editor Bob Devaney had just slipped out of a staff meeting and was cleaning up his desk preparatory to leaving town for a week. For Devaney, the trip figured to be something of a "rest" trip in that out of the seven days he planned to be gone he was hopefully going to spend a couple of them with his wife resting in either Arizona or California. The trip primarily is a recruiting trip, but there was something else on the agenda. "You know I wouldn't want people to think I have to ask other coaches about football," Devaney grinned, "but I'm going to sit down with Johnny McKay and look at some films of the I formation. "I want to talk about some things you really can't talk about on the phone. You can say who does this guy block or that guy block, but I want to actually see what we're talking about." AH Do It Tho interesting thing about this is that it. is highly probable that McKay may in turn be calling Devaney about something himself this summer or during the fall. While this is a specific situation with regard to the I formation, and the Southern Cal coach is regarded as perhaps the leading authority on it, all coaches do an amazing amount of consulting with their colleagues. Normally, it's with a friend from another league. For instance, when Green Bay secondary coach Jerry Burns was at Iowa, the particular coaches he conferred with regularly were Frank Broyles and McKay. Bob and McKay have a great deal of respect and admiration for one another, having served together twice in the June All-Star game. Each has been an assistant to the other once and this summer McKay will be Bob's aide again in the same game. Indicates He's Serious "He's u pretty good football coach," Bob volunteered about McKay. "He's come up with some innovations with that I formation." Devaney, a disciple of the multiple offense, isn't likely to surrender these views, but a heavy dose of I formation is a distinct possibility next fall, particularly if things go well this spring. The Cornhuskers worked with it last spring, but ultimately decided against it. "We just decided with the personnel we had we were better off with a three-back offense," Bob said. "This year we think we'll be better equipped for the two-back offense." Where players might line up would be pure conjecture at this time, but there will be a difference in the physical personality of the NU backs next fall. Last year, with Pete Tatman, Harry Wilson and Ben Gregory seeing heavy duty, there was a bull-like capability there. Only Gregory returns. More Speed Available But with Dick Davis, rookie Joe Orduna, Mick Ziegler and a couple more of the same ilk, t h e r e is more speed . . . and with it the potential for more versatility. It was a case last season of doing what you do best, and at critical times in many ball games, the full house backfield was pretty much the norm. But with the I and the two-back attack, the outside threat is superior, particularly if that f l a n k e r is swift and a good receiver as say a Dennis Roman or a Ben Hart might be. The I, as Devaney knows better than anyone, is not a magic formula. But there has been much success with it in the last few years . . . when the team had the horses with which to operate it. Sometime between now and the May 6 spring game, Devaney will know if he has them or not. Team Points Valuable in BigEightIndoor (Last of a Series) Kansas City, Mo. -- Figuring the field for the 880, 1,000, mile, and two-mile run at the Big Eight Conference indoor track and field championships t h i s Friday and Saturday is strictly a guessing game at best. For the coaches, it could be a little like playing Russian Roulette, but w i t h spiked shoes, as m o v e s never found in a checker game will be made in an effort to get the most possible team points. All this because of Kansas' J i m Ryun, a holder of t h r e e world records, including the outdoor 880 (1:44.9), the indoor 880 (1:48.3), and the mile (3:51.3). VPl AH-America Alciiidor Misses Only Two Votes New York (UPI) -- Lew Alcindor and Jimmy Walker lived their high school years in different kinds of worlds-but they've gone on to roach the highest pinnacle in college basketball together. Alcindor, the most sought after high school player of his time who's lived up to h i s incredible buildup a n d Walker, who played his prep ball in anonymity while being ignored by the high-pressure recruiters, head the 1967 United Press International All- America team named Thursday Alcindor, the 7-1 sensation from I'CLA who was t h e first sophomore named to the first team since Jerry Lucas turned the trick at Ohio State in I960, and Walker, the slick Providence senior standout who was t h e only repeater fn.m last year's first team, were the top two vote-getters on the club. They were joined on t h e first five by Wes Unseld of Louisville, Elvin Hayes of Houston and Bobby Lloyd of Rutgers. Alcindor was left off only two of the 240 ballots from sportswriters and broadcasters across the nation. Walker. compared by no less an expert than Red Auorbach to Oscar Robertson, was a runaway choice and is a cinch to he the No. 1 pick in the National Basketball Association draft. The second foam was made up of R-ob V o i ^ H of D u k o. Clom Haskms of Wpstnn Kentucky. Mo) Daniels rf New Mexico.

Ducats Available For KU Game j University of N e b r a s k a ticket manager Jim Pittenger reported Thursday a "good" supply of reserved ducats are still available for the basketball game Saturday w i t h Kansas. Pittengrr said general admission tickets w i l l go on sale at 1 p.m. Saturday for the regionally televised showdown bout between the top- spotted .taynawks and the contending (Virjhtiskers. Tip off is 1 l.S p.m. Undoubtedly, no one has clouded the possibilities in all four races as R y u n , who has stepped to the conference's best t i m e s this year in the four events. Yet. the world's premier middle-distance r u n n e r , making his first appearance in a Big Eight championship meet as a varsity performer, is far from being alone. Kansas State's C o n r a d Nightingale is the defending NCAA indoor m i l e champion. Chris McCubbins is the current Conference record holder for the three- mile run, as well as being the defending cross country champion. Missouri's Glenn Ogden is one of the most promising distance runners in Missouri history, already dipping under nine minutes for the two-mile. C r a i g Runyan of Colorado is an NCAA all-American a c e , and Oklahoma State's Jim Metcalf is the defending indoor 880 champion as well as being a member of the former world-record holding two-mile relay team. Best example of the competitive quality in the four events comes in the two mile. Never before has the Big Eight had more than one varsity runner under nine minutes during an indoor season. Now. there are four-Ryun (8:44.2), McCubbins (8:51.6), Ogden (8:57.9), and Nightingale (8:58.2)--with a fifth, Kansas State's WPS Dutton, resting just .4 away from joining them. L a s t year, Kansas' John Lawson won the event with a 9:08.5. Nine times this year that time has been bettered. Ryun has run the mile only three times in competition this winter and has the three best Big Eight times for the season. The challengers? Virtually the same as in the two mile, with Kansas' Gene McClain making a comeback after an injury- riddled season and Tom Yergovich, Missouri's Dave Ganz and Kansas State's Dutton. A one-time experimenter with the mile has been Nightingale, who figures to be the top challenger to Ryun in the conference, and perhaps the country, t h i s season. Nightingale holds the NCAA indoor mile record with his 4:03.4. He also has the Big Eight outdoor mark for the distance with a 4:00.9, his all-time best. His coach, DeLoss Dodds, feels it won't be long before he cracks four minutes. Like the 440-600 dash combination, the 1,000 and the 880 are "either or" events. No one, by conference rule, can run in both races. As in the mile, perhaps the best standoff c o u l d come with a head-to-head meeting of Ryun and Nightingale. Ryun's best of the year is 2': 09.9. Nightingale has done 2:10. Strong enough, in a "normal" year, to win the 1,000 is Kansas' Tom Yergovich, who has posted the next best times going into the meet, as he consistently hits the 2:12 mark. That time could shrink when he hits the banked boards. If Yergovich is the leader, his greatest trouble could come from a trio of sopoho- mores, Missouri's Craig Endicott (2:12.7), Iowa State's Mike Houck (2:14.6), and Nebraska's Kent R a d k e (2:16.5), p l u s teammates McClain and Allen Russell. Hebron's Long Ends Captain Hex By RICK AKIN Syracuse -- Hebron's Tracy j Long sweat it a little Wednesday. First, t h e s h i f t y swifty sprained his ankle in Tuesday's practice, cutting his mobility. Second", he was named captain, supposedly an honor. But to Tracy that has been a jinx. "I was worried," the 5-7 senior who beats drums in off-court moments, said. "You know I've be.en captain in three of the four games we've lost." But even Long wasn't needed much as the Bears m o v e d into the Class C State tournament next week with a 68-55 playoff victory against Johnson Wednesday night here. Neither played up to potential but Hebron coach Jerry Martin summed it up nicely with- "As long as they come out this way, I don't care." It was sophomore D a l e Haase who gave Hebron the umph it needed when persistent Johnson retaliated back into contention again a n d again. Haase dropped in 24 points, mostly from near the basket and used his bulk to smother 19 rebounds. Mate John Buller had 13. Haase has actually been the principal figure in Hebron's move into the tournament. With only Long and the appropriately-named Buller as returning lettermen f r o m last season's team, the Bears needed punch. Haase has given it to them. He's scored 62 points in the district playoffs and of course, there's his rebounding. Dale scored 12 points each i half Wednesday night in a ' consistent performance. The Bears were off a little in the first half, committing 19 turnovers and dropping only 10 of 29 field goal trios. They grouped up nicely in the j s e c o n d half however, with 50 r ^ shooting and only sev.en turnovers. The Bears have a 17-4 record for tournament p l a y w h i l e Johnson closed out with a 16-6 mark. Hebron 11 17 IS 22--«8 ' Johnson 7 18 13 17--55 Hebron--Lons 6. Johnson 18. Buller IB, Thumnnn 2.

Koman A\vay 2.20 I Waverly -- Seward Concordia coach Gene Faszholz admitted, "I was just praying it wouldn't go inot overtime because they had momentum going." The Raiders had j u s t squeaked by Elkhorn. 58-56, for a Class C state tournament berth in a Wednesday night clash here that saw the Antlers battle back from a 52-41 deficit after three quarters and lose everything by twice failing to connect on the front end of one-and-one free throws, with five seconds left and after the buzzer had sounded. "I think primarily o u r big men, Bob Haak a n d Maurice Johnson, ran out of gas in that last quarter." Faszholz s a i d , although Haak grabbed 14 rebounds, including the one after the missed Elkhorn foul s h o t with five seconds left. That one may have even been more vital than the one Steve Curtis made of a missed Elkhorn shot from the field with 30 seconds left and Concordia leading, 58-54. "That's the way, Curtis, that's the most important rebound we've had a 1 1 y e a r , " Faszholz shouted from the bench, a little prematurely. Concordia m i s s e d t h e front end of a one-and-o n e itself with 27 seconds to go, Elkhorn's Keith Phillippe popped in his fourth b u c k- et of the final quarter to make it 58-56 M-ith 20 seconds left and Concordia then threw the ball away to set up the furious finish. Concordia racked up 11 straight points to take a 48- 33 lead midway of the third quarter. "We just shot our wad then," Faszholz said. "We dominated the boards, f o r they would come down and shoot and miss and we would come down and hit." Jan Lohmeyer, the point man on the 1-3-1 zone stole the ball twice and Rod Geis- selmann and Brian Naber once each during the 11- point spree. Lohmeyer had four thefts for the night and Faszholz added, "He's been our key of late." In the deathly still Elkhorn dressing room, coach Gene Kruger's first thought was that, "Our kjds sure aren't quitters and t h e y never beat a finer bunch of boys. "We stole the ball a couple of times that gave us the incentive in that fourth quarter and got on t h e boards better. They just hit real well from outside tonight, though, and you don't rebound those shots. We didn't shoot tonight as well as we can." but the Antlers still canned 60 per cent of their efforts, anyway. Naber hit 22 'points and grabbed 16 rebounds a n d Lohmeyer had 19 points for Concordia, while Elmwood star Doug Ohm moved inside a little in the second period and then permanently mid-way in the t h i quarter and garnered 19 points and 17 caroms. Elkhorn finishes 20-4 and was rated seventn compared to Concordia's 10th in the latest rankings. Seward Concordia . . . . 17 IS 19 s_ a Elkhorn 15 IB 10 10-Seward Concordia -- N'aber 22.
